Strings Program

violinist.jpg  Welcome to our new year at Cider Mill 2021-22!

 For those of you that are returning students, welcome back! 

For those interested in continuing strings this year, look out for a grade-level invitational email and then when we meet, you can take home a simple enrollment form to be completed with your family.

For 4th and 5th grade students that are joining us and learning a stringed instrument for the first time (violin, viola, cello, bass), there will also be a simple enrollment form that you can take home to be completed with your family.

For 3rd graders, Mr. Hayashi and Mrs. Franz will visit classes during the first week of school to demonstrate the different stringed instruments (violin, viola, cello).  Following these classroom visits, students that are excited at the prospect of playing this year should take a paper enrollment form home with them.  Please return this as soon as possible so that you can have access to all necessary course information through your child’s newly created string class in Schoology (3 ORCH).

+5th grade students that are continuing this year will all meet on Tuesdays.
